Transfer Case

Just bought a 93 YJ, 4cyl, 5spd, 4x4. Traded a small pick up for it. It has a clunking sound when driving and I have narrowed it down to the transfer case. What it does is when driving and with it in gear, both 4-wheel and out, it makes a clunking sound that matches the turining of the drive shaft. I have changed the fluids, replaced all u-joints. With the front drive shaft removed you can grab the Yoke and turn it from side to side and you can here the clunking sound happening, the yoke moves about 2-3 inches and then if you turn it fast the opposite way you hear the clunk. I have not dropped the tranny and transfer case yet, has this happened to anyone and if so was it just a bearing or does the entire transfer case need to be rebuilt? The jeep has a 4 inch lift and a 3 inch body lift, I want to do this right. Thanks for your comments.

You can rebuild just the case. Im sure you already do but it is the perfect time to install a sye kit. If you dont feel comfortable doing this you could save money but pulling the case and taking it to a transmission shop. But rebuilding it will be a whole lot cheaper and sensible in my opinion.
